  1. Week 2 GDT

    Let’s keep this in context. I did say regular season games. Also, I’ve been a fan for longer than 20 years, and the Dolphins have been a colossal pain in the *** for as long as I can remember. Miami had no problem kicking the snot out of the Patriots when the Pats were really bad in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. I watched those games back in the day and I’m overjoyed to see the Pats beat the bag out of the Fish in Miami. I don’t care how bad they are. I wish the Patriots scored 80 on them.
  2. Week 2 GDT

    As a 34-year Patriots fan, this was as glorious a regular season win as I have ever seen. Doesn’t make up for all the suffering at the hands of the Dolphins over the years, but it was really, really sweet. Thank you for that, Patriots.
  3. Week 2 GDT

    Oh my good God...
  4. Week 2 GDT

    I think I’ve had just about enough of Stephen Gostowski missing field goals.
  5. Week 2 GDT

    Games I’m interested in (NOT vs. the spread): Patriots over the Dolphins. I think Belichick calls off the dogs and the game is closer than anybody expects. Bills over the Giants. Bills are just the better team. Rams over the Saints. Close game, but I think the Saints aren’t as good away from home and that will be the difference. This time. Eagles over Falcons. The Eagles are the more complete team, and tend to do better in big games than the Falcons. And this IS a big NFC matchup. Browns over the Jets. Browns on the rebound. Jets have issues.
  6. For what it’s worth, in my opinion the 2004 Patriots is the best Patriots team of all time with a slight nod to the 2016 squad.
  7. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    This deserves more than the three “likes” it has. Good stuff here, people.
  8. Nice! i have an extensive DVD/Blu-ray collection that includes all six SB season highlight videos AND all six volumes of Three Games to Glory. NFL Films really does a great job. I’ve watched the 2001; ‘04; and ‘16 AFC Championship Games multiple times. Good times, indeed. As far as the Steelers “trash-mouth” brand of football goes, I’ve never seen anyone talk so much and deliver so infrequently. I do think they’re learning their lesson, though, because I didn’t hear any chatter prior to last Sunday’s game. Not that it helped them on the field any, but it shows emotional growth, and that should be encouraging to Pittsburgh fans. The Steelers didn’t make the Patriots angry and the Pats called off the dogs in the second half.
  9. I specifically remember Bill Belichick saying to a Boston reporter prior to the game that he had no idea where the points were going to come from, as the Patriots offense in January 2002 certainly wasn’t what it is today. My cousin (a huge Steelers fan) told me after the game that the Steelers had neglected special teams for years, and it finally came back to bite them. I’ve been a Patriots fan since January ‘86, and I’ve never seen a game like that one. Almost 20 years later it still stands out as a very great game among great games. The only reason this game isn’t talked about more is because of the game that followed it two weeks later. It was also a nice swan song for Drew Bledsoe to close out his time in New England.
  10. I’m convinced that Super Bowl XLII was the payment due for XXXVI. God has a funny way of evening the world out.
  11. Thoughts on Browns after week one loss

    I’m taking a wait-and-see approach. I think the Titans are better than we thought, and a better test of Cleveland’s mettle will be how well they rebound after getting beaten like they did. We’ll know a whole lot more about the Browns Tuesday morning.
  12. Patriots (19-0) or Dolphins (0-19)?

    You’d think you might win at least one game by accident, right? That ball bounces funny sometimes...
  13. Patriots (19-0) or Dolphins (0-19)?

    I believe the ‘60 Cowboys went 0-11-1.
  14. Wow. Is there some kind of “Post of the Year Award” I can nominate this for? I’m cutting and saving this for posterity. I promise to give credit to you for ANY future use. You’re a beast, sir.
  15. I hope so too. He shredded the Steelers Sunday night. Hope that keeps up.
